I don't totally think sporting hero mythmaking is all that bad, really........

...we all grew up with sports heroes. THey were all likely bastards of the highest order. But it made us enjoy things. We got to have more fun. Sports were more fun.
Obviously lying and cheating are two different worlds. Raising money for a lie is another. But just in general, I think we know too much...desire to know too much...about the athletes we cheer for.
Guess what? They suck. Just like most of us. Probably worse, because they have been entitled brats all their lives.
Do we need to know every little thing about them, though? Or does that only take away from our fun? Forget them...they deserve whatever they get. But this hunger to know everythign about everyone in order to strike a cynical stance. Who does that hurt, really?
Our "need to know" society has ruined entertainment. This stuff isn't real. It's just sports. And so much of the fun of it is drained because of our constant need to know these big children's faults.
Just one man's opinion
